We stayed a couple of nights here on our South Island road trip. Invercargill is an easy, pleasant drive from Queenstown. The Birchwood Manor Motel is a very good, clean, homely Motel where you can expect a friendly helpful welcome from David and Sue. Parking is off road. The centre of Invercargill is within walking distance (10-15 mins) and there is a Countdown supermarket and petrol station directly opposite the Motel. NB. Supermarkets in Invercargill do not sell alcohol. However, there is a liquor store a short drive away. Great wi-fi connection!
Invercargill on a Saturday afternoon (3.30pm) was deserted. Shops were shuttered, restaurants closed, it was like a ghost town. The only restaurant we could find was Speights Ale House where we had dinner on both nights. Any port in a storm.
If you really need to visit Invercargill, then the Birchwood Manor Motel is ideal and we would stay again. However, it is doubtful that Invercargill will find a place in our itinerary again. Nevertheless, Queens Park is beautiful and the Museum and Art Gallery is a delight.
